Cheesy Grits

From Food Network Kitchens Making It Easy

2 C chicken broth
2 C milk
3/4 C old-fashioned grits
1 sprig fresh thyme
1 Tbsp unsalted butter
1/2 tsp kosher salt
Pinch cayenne pepper
1 C grated cheddar cheese or 1/2 C grated pecorino cheese

Stir the chicken broth, milk, grits, thyme, butter, salt and cayenne pepper in a large microwave-safe bowl or glass measuring cup. Microwave on high, uncovered, for 12 minutes and then stir. Grits should be fairly thick but still moist-they will thicken more once you add the cheese. If they still seem too loose, microwave up to 3 more minutes. Remove the thyme sprig from the grits, stir in the cheese, and serve hot.
